Another attraction of Ashgabat was included in the Guinness World Records, which reflects all the special world achievements in various fields, including in the field of architecture and construction, the Turkmen Dovlet Khabarlary (TDH) reported.
The star of a legendary Turkmen ancestor Oguzhan on the top of the Ashgabat television tower was recognized as the biggest world star in the architecture and was put on the Guinness World Records, the report reads.
